Observer Agencies

A CCSDS Observer Agency is a governmental or quasi-governmental organization that participates in CCSDS activities at a reduced level of support. Observer Agencies are encouraged but not expected to make best efforts to ensure the adherence of their agency’s internal standards to the applicable CCSDS Recommended Standards. Observer Agencies are encouraged, but not required, to contribute resources to the working groups. Individuals from the Observer Agencies are invited to participate as technical experts. There is no limit on the number of national or multinational agencies that may participate as Observer Agencies.

For more information about becoming a CCSDS Observer Agency, please contact the Member Agency Representative associated with your agency’s home country or the CCSDS Secretariat.
